Dear All: its official! Through our combined efforts, SEFC will not be demolished! Trinity's plan now involves a new building (Phase III of the project at the site) which retains the existing gym and pool. BPHC instructed Trinity to redesign a new residential tower which did not require the destruction of the gym and pool after bowing to pressure "from the community" (aka us), possibly the BRA, and our political allies.
We reviewed the plans with Hank Keating and Eva Erlich of Trinity this evening with Counsilor Tito Jackson, Siba Malaba, Legislative aid to Senator Sonia Chang Diaz. Trinity structural engineers worked for months on relocating the tower, partly over the Miranda Creamer building and running alongside Albany street. Hank Keating said they will be pushing to get the project approved asap, especially given uncertainties about the BRA's future. We are behind this effort and I encourage you to email Casy Hines at BRA (email@example.com) with your support of Tr
